Valentine’s Day is next weekend! So if you are going to get your sweetheart something extra special, this is the weekend to hit the markets for handmade, vintage or edible Valentines.

Weekend Market Picks:

Saturday, February 7, 2015

East 67th Street Flea Market: Looking for vintage valentines? Maybe a beautiful brooch, an antique sewing kit, or an elegant set of bar ware? This indoor flea market offers a rewarding treasure hunt. I’m always drawn to the miniature things on tables, so definitely take your time and look at everything there. 6AM – 5PM, East 67th St. between 1st and York Aves., Manhattan

Manhattan Vintage Show: Remember when clothing wasn’t disposable? Garments were designed for style and manufactured for quality. You can find some of the finest women’s and menswear from decades past. This show seems to be all about the 1960’s ’70’s (think Carnaby Street and gogo boots). There’s an entry fee, but do it for fashion. Do it for New York. 11AM – 6PM, Metropolitan Pavilion 125 West 18th Street between 6th & 7th Avenues, Manhattan

Tucker Square Greenmarket: I love this market on the bustling Upper West Side. It’s such a lovely part of the neighborhood, and yet it is also right across the street from the venerable Lincoln Center. You can find heritage ducks and fresh eggs, along with maple syrup, local cheese and dairy, beautiful breads and much more from the dozen vendors during wintertime. 8AM – 5PM, West 66th Street & Columbus Avenue, Manhattan

Saturday & Sunday, February 7 & 8, 2015

Essex Street Market: There are plenty of edible valentine’s to be found at the Essex Street Market. Start with handmade chocolates, and move onto delicious cheeses and beautiful baked goods. Better yet, get some heritage meats or fresh fish and make someone a fabulous dinner. There’s a classic barber shop here too if you’re looking for a trim. 8AM – 7PM Monday – Saturday, 10AM – 6PM Sunday, 120 Essex Street (at Delancey Street), Manhattan

Fulton Stall Market: 2015 Grand Opening! This weekend is the Grand Opening of the Fulton Stall Market’s indoor winter farmers market. Dedicated to serving the South Street Seaport neighborhood, this market is a lovely destination if you want to explore the seaport’s highlights. You will find farm fresh produce, as well as artisanal preserves, baked goods, dairy, proteins and freshly roasted coffee. 9AM – 4PM Saturdays, 10AM – 3PM Sundays, 207A Front Street, Manhattan 

SHWICK Market: SHWICK Market of Makers just keeps getting better and better. Not yet a year old, it is a part of the fabric of Bushwick. You’ll find a wonderful variety of food entrepreneurs selling cold-pressed seasonal juices, savory snacks and sweet treats. You’re bound to find the perfect valentine among the artisan and vintage sellers this weekend at SHWICK. 11AM – 7PM, 6 Charles Place, Brooklyn

Sunday, February 8, 2015

Astoria Pre-Valentine’s Day Market: Queen’s market pops up for Valentine’s Day shopping on Sunday! I’ve met talented artisans from the borough at previous events, and this market will also feature vintage sellers and baked goods. The market takes place in Bohemian Hall, so do your shopping and then walk downstairs to the Beer Garden for drinks and hearty traditional Czech & Slovak fare. 12PM – 6PM, Bohemian Hall, 29-19 24th Avenue, Astoria, Queens 

Brooklyn Pop Up Market: 2015 Grand Opening! This weekend marks their first market event for the 2015 season. The vendor lineup looks excellent, with a mix of food vendors, jewelry makers, print artists, handmade candles and many others. 11AM – 7PM, Brooklyn Desks, 49 Wyckoff Avenue (between Starr Street and Willoughby Avenue), Brooklyn

Greenpointers Valentine’s Market: There’s something particularly special to me about the Greenpointers markets. I think it’s the care and attention to detail they invest in the entire market experience. I went to their Valentine’s Market last year and had a beautiful experience. This year’s list of vendors looks fantastic. 1PM – 7PM, Greenpoint Loft, 67 West Street, 5th Floor, Brooklyn

Queer Expression Valentine’s Fair: Organized by Arts & Queers, “a new collaboration of queer artists and small business owners,” this market event features 30 artisans, artists, food vendors and vintage sellers, as well as music and a full bar. You can also a Tarot Card reading and a $10 hair cut. Admission is Free, with a two drink minimum suggested. 1AM – 6PM, Littlefield, 622 Degraw Street, Brooklyn
